None other than Imran can send Nawaz jail, and that is why I support him unconditionally,” he said.
Chan said that he remains committed with the Bhuttoism ideology but if the PPP’s ideology is now Sharjeel Memon (a PPP leader facing corruption charges) then he is better without it.
He claimed that only Imran Khan could dethrone Nawaz Sharif.
“I prefer masses over ideology. I joined ranks of Imran Khan to raise voice against ‘spiritual child’ of Zia-ul-Haq”, uttered Chan while adding at the same time, “If the name of ideology is Sharjeel Memom, then I am a rebel. If the name of ideology is Bhutoism, then I am still follower of Bhutto”.Chan forecasted that Khan would gain power soon.
